The master of light
The profoundly influential and daring designer, architect, author, and cultural critic Poul Henningsen left his mark on many areas of Danish thought and design, and built a legacy that remains integral to Louis Poulsen’s work to shape light.
The designer’s partnership with Louis Poulsen went on to give the world such classics as the PH 5, PH Artichoke, and PH Snowball.
A true icon
Originally designed for the Langelinie Pavillonen restaurant in Copenhagen, where it still hangs today, the sculptural PH Artichoke quickly drew attention with its unique, organic form – and for its ability to instantly elegance and ambiance to a space. Keeping the source of light hidden within its layers of leaves, the pendant creates soft, glare-free illumination.
Timeless PH ambience
The brushed brass finish, which gives the lamp's familiar shape a new expression, reflects today’s interior decor while infusing timeless warmth and sophistication
This special edition, available exclusively through 2018, will be engraved with Poul Henningsen’s initials - PH Artichoke - 1958-2018 - Anniversary Edition, and a unique number.
Design to Shape Light
Louis Poulsen has always sought, not only to design lamps, but also to shape light and create an atmosphere that makes people feel good, both in- and outdoors. The shape of light creates space and our products should live harmoniously within the space they define - indirect, soft and inviting.
